The staff present were exceptional in thier presentation and demeanor. They werer all very gracious and helpful and did not have a negative attitude about having to work on Christmas.
The hoel was exceptionally clean and quiet. The food was exceptional. The location is easy to locate and is suited for all of the North Ausin attactions/destinations.

The beds, as ususal, were great--very comfortable. Everything about the room was first class!

We were pleased with the hotel. We took a family trip to Austin to celebrate a belated Christmas with my extended family. I chose Embassy Suites because my toddler has to have a separate sleeping area. The hotel worked out perfectly. Yes, due to the configuration it can be loud in the living room section. So for her nap, we put her in the bedroom and stuffed towels under both doors, and used her sound machine. She slept for 2.5 hours both days. She also had no problems going to bed around 8:30 in the living room. We just used her sound machine and put towels under the door. She slept past 7am every morning. If you're a late sleeper, I'd bring earplugs because it does get loud about 8am because many guests are utilizing the free breakfast. Which was great, by the way. Much better than what a Hampton Inn offers. Our toddler loved the swans and the fish. Sure, it's eighties style, but if it keeps my kid happy, great. The location of the hotel is excellent- tons of shopping and restaurants at the Domain & Arboretum, plus easy access to Mopac & 183. We made it downtown to the Children's Museum in 10 minutes.

If you're looking for fancy, this isn't the Four Seasons. But the hotel is economical, great for families, clean, and the free breakfast buffet is a definite plus. The room also comes with a fridge and a microwave.

Dear UTBlonde0427: thanks for the positive comments regarding your stay at Embassy Suites Austin-Arboretum. We are very glad you and your 20 month old had such a pleasant stay.
Many families, like yours, enjoy the two room suites plus the free cooked to order breakfast available--plus good ol' Butch and Sundance our Royal Swans.

Hope you have the chance to come back again and stay with us.

Happy New Year!

We picked this hotel because of the indoor pool and central location. Those qualities exceeded our expectations as the location was nice and the indoor pool was actually warm. The room was a little less than expected for an Embassy Suites. The bed was comfy but the decor was a little outdated. We had NO warm water in the shower. Coldest shower I've taken in a while. It was a constant struggle if you needed to get into the closet as the door to the bedroom and the door to the closet were right up against each other. The closet doors were mirrors so it makes me wonder how many times they've been broken because of this design.

Location was near chain restaurants - busy traffic - nothing memorable. For a conference, Embassy Suites is not ideal because of the lack of privacy for attendees (due to interior rooms looking down to main area). Needed to drive to anywhere unique to explore Austin.

Room Tip: Avoid interior rooms - very dark!

Dear dreamtravelreviewer, first thanks for taking the time to write about your experiences at Embassy Suites Austin - Arboretum. We are in the Northwest - Arboretum Austin Area. To explore downtown Austin you would need a car. We apologize if you found the atrium a distraction during the conference you attended. We do quite a few meetings, conferences and banquets year round.

Hope to see you again so you can experience a far more satisfying visit with us.

When you are living out of a suitcase on a regular basis, it is nice to identify hotels that are predictably comfortable. The Embassy Suites Hotel Austin - Arboretum is one of those hotels.

The rooms are comfortable, quiet, spaceous, and well appointed. The service staff is warm and friendly. The breakfast buffet is high quality. And the location is wonderful. All around, this hotel gets it right!

Room Tip: Top floors have a great view of the foyer...

We tend to visit Austin on a regular basis to see family. We have two hotels we prefer in the Arboretum area, one being the Embassy Suites. We have found the help to be extremely friendly and helpful. The overall appeal of the property is very good. The swans and Koi in the pond is a nice touch. I definitely want to commend the desk personnel upon our arrival for going above and beyond, they are Skye and Angela. Thank you ladies for your help with my mistake.

My nine month old son and I tagged along on my husband's business trip. This hotel was surprisingly kid friendly. Plenty of space for his pack and play in the room. Indoor pool. He loved watching the swans. Close to lots of shopping. Clean rooms.

The first night of our stay we were sent to another hotel due to over booking but the staff made it up to us by placing goodies and an apology note in our room the next day. Very nice gesture.

We were really pleased with our stay and will be returning for a few days in January.
